Podcast: Clean Energy Future: Alan Pears

Alan Pears AM, is arguably Australia’s best-regarded sustainability and energy efficiency expert. In this podcast, Alan talks about renewable energy, government policy and what he calls our ‘competitive democracy’.

“The problems are our leadership, short-sightedness, the misguided fear we will be worse off in a clean energy future, and lack of vision and practical focus.” And through all this Alan Pears remains positive!
